What about "Latviania?"



This week, the Czech Republic's soccer federation was forced to issue a formal apology after hosting Latvia in a prep game for the European Championship. The problem: the Czechs were actually playing Lithuania.

The Latvian flag was in the game program along with a photo of the Latvian national soccer team. Before the match, Czech organizers played Latvia's national anthem.

It is for this reason that Eternal Remont is a vocal supporter of Czechoslovenian reunification. Besides, all of these countries are basically the same, right?

It is time to end the madness.

We're vocal supporters of Czechoslovak reunification?

Czechoslovenian reunification apparently, Mr. Ta. The honorable pirate diplomat is a master with subtle humor.

You can tell the difference by their actions towards Russia - Latvians like to move statues, while Lithuanians like to block statutes (a la PCA).
